Sources used in compiling this list are varied. They include (but are by no means limited to) the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Viva Las Vegas : After Hours Architecture by Alan Hess (San Francisco : Chronicle Books, 1993), and Casino Design : Resorts, Hotels, and Themed Entertainment Spaces by Justin Henderson (Gloucester, Mass. : Rockport, 1999). Our apologies for those not credited. This is due primarily to the process of converting an in-house informal help list to something more formal, as well as to the fact that many people have worked on the list over many years.
